-  Berries and greenery
-  3 battery operated votives
-  Hot glue

Here is the video tutorial:





Directions:
  1. Paint the votives white.  Do not paint the bottom.  I used a multi-surface paint, which is available at the craft store.  I also used a stencil brush, but that is not necessary.  I just like the texture from the stencil brush.
  2. While the votives are drying, move on to the hat.  Take the floral foam and roll it along the black craft foam.  You want to trace it with a pencil and then cut it out.
  3. Using hot glue, glue it around the floral foam and cut off any excess.
  4. Trace the top of the floral foam on the black craft foam and cut out.  Glue it to the top of the hat and trim off any excess.
  5. Place the hat on the black craft foam and draw a circle larger than the foam.  This will become the brim of the hat.  Cut it out and glue it on the bottom of the floral foam.
  6. Add berries and greenery to the hat for a little embellishment.
  7. Once the votives are dry, paint on the face, on the top votive.
  8. Paint on the coal buttons on the middle votive.
  9. Take your wire and twist it around the top of one of the votives. 
  10. Bend fingers at one end.  Then do the same on the other and cut off any excess.
  11. Glue it onto the top of the middle votive.
  12. Paint the wire that is touching the votive white and the arms going out brown.
  13. Cut out two lengths of red felt.  Fringe one end on each of them.
  14. Glue it to the top of the middle votive, over the wire.  Pull it around and arrange it in the front and finish gluing.
  15. Add berry and greenery embellishments.
  16. Add the dimensional white paint on the hat and scarf and then sprinkle glitter over it.  This gives you the opportunity to cover any hot glue, seams or imperfections.  


That’s it!  Now add your battery operated votives and have him jolly up your Christmas decor!  

Thanks for stopping by!  Remember:  Life’s too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe! 

Happy Holidays!
